Quotes of the day... 1/21/15

To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, 
to smile without hostility at people and institutions, 
to compensate for the shortage of love in the world 
with more love in small, private matters; 
to be more faithful in our work, 
to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge
obtainable from mockery and criticism: 
all these are things we can do. 
     ~ Hermann Hesse

It's not about how to achieve our dreams, 
it's about how to lead our life, ... 
If we lead our life the right way, 
the karma will take care of itself, 
the dreams will come to us.
     ~adapted, Randy Pausch
